wex, 23 Jan 2018since when 1Mbps is 125KB/s ? Its 128 :P1Mbps is equal to 1024 bits and 1Bytes is equal to 8bits, therefore its 128KBps
wex, 23 Jan 2018since when 1Mbps is 125KB/s ? Its 128 :Phow did you get 128? 8bit=1byte
To help other readers, these are the conversions
* Slow (0-1Mbps) = 0 - 125KB/s
* Okay (1-5Mbps) = 125KB/s - 625KB/s
* Fast (5-20Mbps) = 625KB/s - 2500KB/s [which is 2.5MB/s]
* Very Fast (20Mbps) = 2500KB/s - above
Mb is megaBIT per second
MB is megaBYTE per second
Watch out for the capital letters to know which is which.
New Android P will feature seconds on the clock so you wouldn't be guessing
when the clock strike midnight precisely!
Kiyasuriin, 23 Jan 2018cont: Whoops. forgot to add something. the app measures speeds in MegaBytes. while the ISP an... moreOH. I understand now! silly me! it does measure in bits instead of bytes! please ignore what I said! ^^'
Anonymous, 23 Jan 2018Since when was 5Mbps fast?cont:
Whoops. forgot to add something. the app measures speeds in MegaBytes. while the ISP and Infrastracture measures in MegaBits. (a bit is EIGHTH of a byte.) so. according to scales you are actually knowing.
Slow (0-1) is 0-8 Mbps
Okay (1-5) is 8-40
Fast (5-20) is 40-160
and Very fast (20+) is 160 and beyond.
Anonymous, 23 Jan 2018Since when was 5Mbps fast?5 MBps (megaBYTE) is 40 Mbps (40 MegaBIT per second) and it's the minimum barrier to be considered fast. and since it's the half-mark for a cable-connection. 40 Mbps in wifi usually refers to the fact you got ATLEAST 80 Mbps. Do note though. that not always it's HALF the speed. I've seen cases as a manager in an ISP company that the costumer in the infrastracture used had sometimes 70% and even 80%. so each case for it's own.
Its probably gonna work like collecting users data to Google service there is no other way to Google knows this speeds.
1ns0mniac, 23 Jan 2018Right! What's the point of this function & this article.to tell u that android 8.1 can show u how fast public Wi-Fi networks are
Lol, CyanogenMod has been doing this for several years already. LOL.
Orsted, 22 Jan 2018Public Wifi are usually slow anywayRight! What's the point of this function & this article.
so it doesnt show how fast they are just putting labels what they might be
